Delaware County to Implement a Countywide Reassessment in 2021

On March 16th, Delaware County Court of Common Pleas Judge Charles B. Burr, II entered a stipulated Order directing the Delaware County Board of Assessment Appeals to implement and conduct a Countywide reassessment of all properties, effective January 1, 2021. The last countywide reassessment in Delaware County was implemented in 2000, based on 1998 “based year” market values. A new reassessment could significantly impact property taxes. Taxpayers in Delaware County should evaluate the potential tax increase or reduction before it happens.
